API & Micro-Services Testing and Test Automation Course at Niche Thyself

APIs and microservices have become integral components. API testing poses a significant challenge in the realm of software testing as it involves interacting directly with applications by making calls to their APIs, bypassing the user interface.

This comprehensive course focuses on providing a thorough understanding of APIs, microservices, and API testing, along with automation tools like Postman and JMeter. As the industry shifts towards cloud computing, there is a growing demand for QA/testers who possess a strong understanding of microservices. The role in high demand is that of an SDET (Software Development Engineer in Test) who is proficient in automating microservices efficiently. The course has no prerequisites and starts from the very basics of programming, with a focus on core Java. Participants will gain expertise in all aspects of APIs, from foundational concepts to advanced techniques.

In addition to API testing, the course covers essential tools such as Git/GitHub for version control, Jenkins for continuous integration, and provides an introduction to Docker for containerization. The trainers leading this course have a minimum of 10 years of experience in test automation, ensuring that participants receive valuable insights and industry best practices.
